Every human being in this world has dreams. And we only have a limited amount of time to make them come true. Sadly, many of us need to give up on those dreams along the way because of societal expectations. More often than not, it’s the women in the family who give up on their individual dreams to fulfil the roles of wife, mother, daughter, homemaker and caregiver.
Dreams and goals are something women forget about in fulfilling the roles assigned to them. They go on guilt trips if they put themselves first at any time. It’s easy to make that a habit. And easy to fall into that comfort zone, to assure yourself that you’re doing what you are, for the good of the family.
It’s time to change the narrative.
In a powerful two-minute video for the ICICI Bank #FundYourOwnWorth initiative, noted actress and auteur Konkona Sen Sharma explains how it’s time for women to invest in themselves. Using a simple analogy of equating money in a piggy bank with time in hand, she drives a strong case for women to start focussing on their self-growth.
